Today's scale is E Flat major. Let's take a look at the notes in the scale. They are E flat, F, G, A flat, B flat, C, D, and the E flat octave. Now let me show you the proper fingering for the scale.
The right hand starts off on the second finger. From there bring your thumb under to hit the F. Hit the G with your second finger and continue finger by finger until the fourth finger hits the B flat. Finish the scale with your third finger on the E flat octave. Coming back down the scale is the exact same, just retrace your steps.
The third finger of the left hand starts off on the E flat and when your thumb hits the G key, the fourth finger comes over and hits the A flat. Continue up the scale finger by finger until the thumb hits the D. Finish off the scale by bringing the third finger over to hit the E flat octave. Come back down using the same fingering.
